rits. This necessity for haste especially prevented the collection of much-needed data about the last twelve months of the war. During those months the Confederate officers wrote very few official reports. The only way, therefore, to get reasonably full information concerning the events of that period is by correspondence with the survivors. This was attempted, but the time was too short for satisfactory results. The author regrets exceedingly that many gallant deeds and minor actions are shut out by space limitation. He can only hope that the publication of this imperfect sketch may incite other pens to more elaborate works. As a subsequent edition of this work may be published, the author asks for the correction of any errors unwittingly made. He renders hearty thanks to Judge A. C. Avery for the use of some material that he had collected; to Judge Walter Clark for books, and to Col. T. S. Kenan and Judge Walter Montgomery and others for valuable counsel and sympathy.
going. Instead of getting one-third, the writer believes that fully two-thirds of those liable to service volunteered under this call. In all, twenty-eight regiments and several battalions promptly volunteered. The adjutant-general's office was daily crowded by men offering companies for service. The Eleventh regiment (Bethel) was reorganized at High Point; the Fortysec-ond (Col. G. C. Gibbs), at Salisbury, April 22d; and at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, were organized the Forty-third (Col. T. S. Kenan), the Forty-fourth (Col. G. B. Singeltary), the Forty-fifth (Col. Junius Daniel), the Forty-sixth (Col. E. D. Hall), the Forty-seventh (Col. S. H. Rogers), the Forty-eighth (Col. R. C. Hill), the Forty-ninth (Col. S. D. Ramseur), the Fiftieth (Col. M. D. Crator), the Fifty-second (Col. J. K. Marshall), the Fifty-third (Col. W. A. Owens), the Fifty-fourth (Col. John Wimbish), and the Fifty-fifth (Col. J. K. Conolly) —all between the 21st of April and the 19th of May. The Fifty-first (C
s in North Carolina when it was thought that another great expedition was about to invade the State, organized a demonstration against New Bern, and, to still further confine the Federals, shortly afterward laid siege to Washington. These were the two towns containing large Federal garrisons. At the same time, General Longstreet made a similar movement against Suffolk. Gen. Junius Daniel's North Carolina brigade, made up of these regiments: Thirty-second, Colonel Brabble; Forty-third, Colonel Kenan; Forty-fifth, Lieut.-Col. S. H. Boyd; Fifty-third, Colonel Owens, and Second battalion, Lieut.-Col. H. L. Andrews, moved toward New Bern by the lower Trent road; the cavalry under General Robertson was sent by the upper Trent road, and General Pettigrew's brigade, with fifteen guns under Major Haskell, was ordered to approach the city near Barrington's Ferry, to bombard the gunboats and Fort Anderson. General Pettigrew's brigade consisted of the following North Carolina regiments: Eleven
divisions of Rodes, Early and Johnson. In Rodes' division were three North Carolina brigades, Iverson's, Daniel's and Ramseur's; in Early's was Hoke's brigade, commanded during this campaign (General Hoke being wounded) by Col. I. E. Avery, of the Sixth North Carolina; in Johnson's division were the First and Third regiments. General Daniel's brigade had but recently been incorporated into the army of Virginia, and was constituted as follows: Thirty-second, Colonel Brabble; Forty-third, Colonel Kenan; Forty-fifth, Lieut.-Col. S. H. Boyd; Fifty-third, Colonel Owens, and Second battalion Lieut.-Col. H. L. Andrews. General Rodes was sent to dislodge a force at Berryville, and General Ewell marched directly for Winchester. In the assault made by Early's troops on the fortifications at Winchester, Hoke's brigade was in reserve and not actively engaged. When the enemy evacuated Winchester and attacked General Steuart, of Johnson's division, who had taken position at Jordan Springs to
son obliqued his men somewhat to the left, the movement uncovered Daniel's front, and he went into direct action against Stone and his reinforcements; but sent Colonel Kenan with the Forty-third and Colonel Owen with the Fifty-third, to aid Iverson and his own left. Some of Stone's men were advantageously posted in a railroad cut,on on the Fifty-fifth regiment; Maj. E. A. Ross, a hard fighter and earnest friend. Among the wounded field officers were Cols. J. K. Connally, C. Leventhorpe, T. S. Kenan, S. D. Lowe, F. M. Parker, R. T. Bennett; Lieut.-Cols. J. R. Lane, S. H. Boyd, R. D. Johnston, M. A. Parks, and W. J. Green, acting aide to General Pettigrew; Mmes and J. B. Jordan, and perhaps others equally brave whom the records do not mention. Several of these officers, like the gallant colonel of the Forty-third, T. S. Kenan, had not only the ill fortune to be wounded, but had added to it the misfortune of spending the rest of the time covered by the war in a Federal prison. The
d just been rendered by General Hoke's command, and also upon its record at Cold Harbor, Colonel Burgwyn says: In the spring of 1864 the Confederate authorities decided to anticipate the pending campaign by the capture of some of the towns held by the enemy in eastern North Carolina. Brig.-Gen. R. F. Hoke was selected to command the expedition. He took with him his own, Ransom's, Terry's Virginia brigade, the Forty-third North Carolina regiment, of which your distinguished citizen, Thomas S. Kenan, was colonel, and several batteries of artillery, assisted by the ram Albemarle operating in the Roanoke river. Capturing Plymouth (April 20, 1864), after one of the most brilliant of assaults, with some 2,500 prisoners and large supplies of provisions and munitions of war, General Hoke marched to Washington, forced the evacuation of the place, and promptly invested New Bern, which was to be assaulted the next day with every prospect of success, when telegrams from President Davis, S
